The purpose of this topic is to discuss the politics of helping professionals. A few questions to consider: Is there a place for conservatives in the helping professions? If you are a conservative, do you feel like an outcast in your profession? If you are not a conservative, do you feel there is room for conservatives, or do you feel their values come in conflict with a "good" social worker's values? I have not seen a place to discuss this topic and hope it could be done here to increase understanding and broaden knowledge.
If you have an opinion, even if it is a strong one, please share it, but please be respectful of others, even when you disagree with them.
